2019-11-12 18:25:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

BACKGROUND Isotretinoin remains one of the first line medications for moderate-to-severe acne vulgaris (AV) but its side effect is a major concern for Asian patients.

OBJECTIVE Investigators aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the 1,565 nm non-ablative fractional laser (NAFL) in combination with isotretinoin and pricking blood therapy (PBT) for treatment of AV.

METHODS A retrospective analysis of 60 patients with moderate-to-severe AV was performed. Four groups (n=15) were evaluated: 1,565nm NAFL alone, oral isotretinoin alone, double therapy (NAFL + isotretinoin) and triple therapy (NAFL + isotretinoin + PBT).
